Hello Brendon,

When i do a make distclean i want to perform the distclean as normal
for all directories EXCEPT when descending into $builddir/patched

When distclean is recursively invoked in the patched subdir, i want to
perform a rm -r gcc-4.0.1 doxygen-1.5.1

Then, with current Automake, you cannot put these dirs in SUBDIRS nor
DIST_SUBDIRS.  So I guess you need to write proxy *-local rules for all
the operations you want to support:

For example:
       cd gcc-4.0.1 && $(MAKE) all

BTW, this simulates the case when `gcc-4.0.1' is after `.' in SUBDIRS.  This
won't work if `all' needs to be made in the sub-directory before in `.' (which
is often the case).
I don't have a good solution when the sub-directory needs to be invoked
recursively before `.', does anyone have an idea?  (better than overriding the
recursion mechanism with a hand-crafted one)
